Hello I am new to the jeep 4x4 vehicles i have a 96 GC Laredo v8 4x4 automatic. A couple things wrong with my jeep is one Where is the shifter suppost to be on my 4x4 is it supoose to stay on 4 full time ?? it feels like the 4wd is on but I can't tell. Also my blower controls work up to the dot before high once i switch to high it cuts off why is that i have checked around and can not find an answer to my question?

If the shift patter for the transfer case is:

4FT
|
N
|
4Lo

then it needs to stay in 4FT for everyday street driving. If it is hopping when taking sharp turns or when doing figure 8's, then the viscous coupler inside the transfer case has gone bad. It's about $300 for the part, but should last another 100k miles or so.
You can also remove the front drive shaft until you get it fixed, BUT you must have a 96+ to do this otherwise it can roll in park.

If the shift pattern is different than that, then you should have a 2wd option you can use. (you can swap transfer cases, but it's more work than some people want to do).

Not sure about the blower motor issue. Maybe someone else will chime in on that one.

The high speed on the blower might be run through a different fuse, or possibly a fusible link. It used to be pretty common because the high speed on the fan was tied in with the Max Cool setting.

I don't "know" that Jeep did this, but it is something to look at.

yes that is mine i figured that out but it still feels like it makes wide turns. I have notice my ball joints on each end are bad and the cv axles are busted open . i also saw a DIY on how to tighten the steering box i am gonna try that and see if it makes a difference
